The New Orleans Saints picked off quarterback Tom Brady on New England's second offensive possession, and made it count.  Drew Brees drove New Orleans from their own 41-yard line on 7-plays and punched it in on a 18 yard catch and run by Pierre Thomas on a swing pass to take the lead 10-7 with 12:55 left in the first half.

Ty Warren injured on that drive.  According to Mike Reiss his right ankle is being worked on by trainers.
